A work of art.
21 March 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Mihun's tryst with greatness. The defining moment of Indian Cinema. This movie is a must watch for anyone who speaks Hindi. More inspiring than Shawshank, with the thrill of Die Hard. Mithun manages to pack another powerful performance, only this time it is impossible to avoid rolling on the floor. And the dialogues, well, they will go down in history as adages. Need i say more? Watch Gunda, or face the wrath of Bulla.

People make movies to earn movie, educate, or express their views. But how many times is a movie made with the sole purpose of making you laugh till you puke your guts out? When was the last time somebody died on the screen, and you could not resist laughing so hard your lungs hurt? Gunda, more than a masterpiece of Mithun, will be remembered for its immortal villains- Hatela, Chutiya, Bulla. A legend, Gunda will stay in your memory till your moment of reckoning.
